  • a Analysis of glycosylation mutants was performed in the W303-1A-derived ste4Δ cells containing an integrated FUS1-lacZ reporter. Cells were incubated at 37° for 5 hr for strains containing the temperature-sensitive alleles alg1-1 and spt14-2. The tunicamycin experiments were performed in the SY2002 background.

  • b The highest concentration of Calcofluor tested that allowed growth on YPD plates.

  • c β-Galactosidase activity was determined as described in materials and methods. The reported values are the average of at least three independent determinations.

  • d Tunicamycin was added at a concentration of 25 μg/ml to log-phase cultures; inductions were for 16 hr in YPD.

  • e Cells were induced in synthetic medium containing glucose.
